Newport Folk continues to roll out lineup

, Staff

Its only four months away and organizers for the Newport Folk Festival continue to roll-out an exciting lineup of artists scheduled to perform at the historic festival. Highlighting the list of new additions are return visits from festival favorites Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and California rockers Dawes, as well as Newport debuts for reggae legend Jimmy Cliff and Norah Jones’ side project Puss N Boots.

Trampled By Turtles, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Robert Hunter, The Milk Carton Kids, Lucero, Devil Makes Three and Lucius will also perform at the Newport Folk Festival, which will take place from Friday, July 25 through Sunday, July 27 at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island. Rounding out the list of recently added performers are Reignwolf, Phox, J Roddy Walston, Shakey Graves, Willie Watson, Gregory Alan Isakov, Caitlin Rose and Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, as well as New England-bred favorites Aoife O’Donovan and Lake Street Dive.

They join previously reported performers Nickel Creek, Band of Horses, Mavis Staples, Jenny Lewis, Shovels and Rope, Death Vessel, Houndmouth, The Oh Hellos, Benjamin Booker and Hurray For The Riff Raff. Organizers will continue to reveal more performers over the next few months as part of their rolling lineup announcement process. The lineup to date for each day is available below.

Despite the full lineup not even being released, the Newport Folk Festival is once again almost completely sold out. The only remaining tickets are single-day tickets for Friday. They can be purchased through Ticketmaster for $59. Discounted children’s tickets are available for youth ages 3 to 12 (children under 3 are free), but must be purchased in conjunction with an adult ticket. All festival seating is general admission.
